although i don't know the auction owner on a person to person basis, based on my online experience with him, i would say he is legit

turbo kit

LexIS307,if you are not intereted in the turbo kit is ok but dont ruin it for everybody else with legitimate questions.Do a back ground check on the seller which happens to be a very good friend of mine.No bs here like you claim....

My question is why would you go with such a big turbo with only a 2mm headgasket spacer? That sounds like a bad idea. A 3mm headgasket spacer drops the compression to 9.0:1, but what would a 2mm drop the compression to? Can you even justify a turbo that big since you will never be able to run any higher level of boost.

"bad Idea" :crazy: hmmmm, Ok (I guess everyone is entitled to there opinion). But for now I'll just stick to the facts!

1. An internal comustion engine can be compared to an air compressor (the more air that you move the more power you make)

2. From fact #1 comes fact #2, when making more power it's the volume of air NOT :shame: the amount of pressure that air is compressed too that makes power

3. From fact #2 comes fact #3, you don't need to run XXlbs of boost to make good power. With the correct size turbo, realistic boost levels can make good power.

No flames guys, just stating some facts.

I've got pix of the turbo in the car if anybody would like to see them.

Dude you obviously have some issues here. I was simply asking a question about using a 2 mm headgasket spacer. Now lets be honest with each other, people don't go running around using T-70's running 7 lbs of boost. The lag on a turbo that size can only be justified if the hp you make at higher boost levels justify its use. Anyway, that was my concern.
